Hi, Looking to buy a new comp and have seen two I like, 1 with 3D accelerated graphics and 1 without. What does it mean? Will it be worse without it?

Where have you seen them?

More details would help, but 3D acceleration is pretty much a must these days. Do you want to play games on it?

Thats the comp I was looking at. But when I compaired them said about no 3D accelerated graphics.

A dell but I see that they can be configured but all gets a bit confusing from there.

Thanks.
So you don't think I need worry about 3D graphics? Or is the graphics card ok in the one from pcworld.

Fairly Decent card however pc world lie as they say a AMD 2600+ is 2600mhz which is just a lie! Its roughly 2ghz not a bad point just bugs me!
